Modern scientific innovation involves the integration of diverse disciplines and the bridging of pure and application-oriented research. This requires a new generation of scientists who are trained to think and experiment beyond traditional boundaries. The recently established Living Systems Institute (LSI), University of Exeter, provides this opportunity by housing world leading Biologists, Physicists, Mathematicians, Computational Scientists and Engineers using cutting-edge technologies.
Our mission is to understand life across all scales - from individual atoms to whole organisms - and to discover approaches for improving health and treating disease. We are pleased to announce the first call for our interdisciplinary PhD programme for the autumn 2020 intake. We wish to recruit the best and most imaginative students from across the full range of disciplines to join our thriving community of over 60 PhD students.
Leading edge approaches including genome editing, advanced imaging, stem cell biology, mathematical modelling, neuroscience, single cell/molecule technologies
An interdisciplinary training programme tailored to the individual student
A supervisory team from different disciplines
The opportunity to formulate your own project
A modern, inclusive environment that is passionately committed to your development.
Fully funded places including personal stipend and training budget
University of Exeter and LSI has strong links with the pharmaceutical industry and is currently working with a number of partner institutions. Several of our LSI PIs have direct industry experience and are able to give advice about how to work in this sector and the difference between industry and research led activity. Overall, the programme will allow you to develop skills highly sought after by employers, while also giving you the opportunity to create a professional network with employers.
The University of Exeter is a research university that is a member of the leading research- oriented UK universities, The Russell Group, The European University Association and the AMBA. As demonstrated in the REF 2014, 98% of the University of Exeter’s postgraduate research has been rated to be of international quality.
Out of its 25,000 students, 5,500 of these are postgraduates, studying across Exeter’s three main campuses located across the South West.
